Pope And Young Club Names New World Record Alaskan Brown Bear During Special Panel

On Monday, September 24th, the Pope and Young Club conducted a Special Panel of Judges in Windsor, Colorado for a potential P&Y World Record Alaskan brown bear. Chris Cammack's enormous bear was shot on the Alaskan Peninsula in May, 2018. Measurers present at the Special Panel were Barry Smith, Lee Kline, and Ed Fanchin. The original score of 29 4/16" was confirmed; surpassing Jack Brittingham’s 2004 bear by 1/16 of an inch.

"Chris is a very excited and humble man," stated Ed Fanchin, Records Chair for the Pope and Young Club. "Chris's bear skull will be at the Pope and Young convention and I recommend that everyone come see this fantastic bear in Omaha, Nebraska April 10th - 13th, 2019. It was a pleasure to be a part of the recent Pope and Young Club Special Panel of Judges who measured Chris Cammack's giant Alaskan Brown bear. The Clubs process of recognizing potential Pope and Young World Records has been working out very well. Congratulations to Chris and the Alaskan Department of Game and Fish for doing outstanding conservation work."

"It is still so surreal to me, the thought that I would have ever had the opportunity to hunt an Alaskan Brown bear with my bow, let alone honored enough to harvest the new P&Y World Record," said Chris Cammack. "Thank you to everyone that helped make this dream a reality. Special thanks to my friend and guide Cole Kramer, and especially my wife, Felicia for supporting me and allowing me to chase my dreams. Usually, Felicia is right beside me with her bow in hand, but this trip she stayed home and took care of our baby girl, Davoni. Coming home to them is a true blessing. Getting to spend two weeks with my friends in the bush of Alaska was the greatest adventure of my life, harvesting a new World Record Brown bear was a bonus."

This incredible animal has been entered into the 31st Recording Period–the biennium representing entries accepted into the P&Y Records Program from January 1, 2017, to December 31, 2018. At the close of every biennial recording period, numerical awards and honorable mentions are awarded to the most outstanding bow-harvested animals in each species category that have been entered during this two-year recording period. New world's records are verified and proclaimed, and awards are presented to these outstanding animals during the Pope and Young Club's biennial convention and awards banquet.
